A new study conducted in Ontario, Canada was recently published in the Epilepsy & Behavior journal regarding the effects of cannabis use on epilepsy.
Researchers surveyed the experiences of 300+ adult patients admitted to an epilepsy monitoring unit over a 14 month period. The use of cannabis during the course of the trial period was associated with perceived reductions in seizure frequency, reduced stress, improved sleep and better memory/concentration. Clinical trial data reports that cannabinoids, in particular cannabidiol (CBD), possess anti-convulsant activity in patients with intractable forms of the disease.
